Those are the questions I ask myself. Sometimes I have no answers for myself. I feel like I have completely lost the person I used to be. I no longer stay up late, go out dancing or drinking or hanging out with friends. I feel like I only have a few friends, when I used to have so many. I see my new and old friends make time to do those things, I often see pictures and videos of them having fun while a babysitter watches the kids. I wonder why I don’t do this. I see people moving up the ladder at their jobs, becoming managers and making more money. Is that something I should be doing? Should I go back to work? Should I change everything I thought I wanted and that I have worked so hard for?
Then I remember why I am who I am. I am a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister and a friend. I am a CEO, manager, nurse and president. I am a lawyer, realtor and customer service agent. I am also a taxi driver, veterinarian, farmer and many, many other things. I am the creator of an amazing little girl and I would not change these things for ANYTHING in the world. I don’t stay up late, drink or hang out with my friends much because I choose not to. I do dance, but I dance in the living room, the grocery store or wherever else my daughter thinks is appropriate. I love dancing with her ANYWHERE more than in any stinky club or bar! Those things do sound fun, but only for special occasions. The repercussions of those things (for me) hinder the precious time I spend with my family.
I guess that my purpose in this world is to be a mother, and all the other jobs that come along with it. The few friends I do have, are the best friends in the world. My house is a mess, and I may not make $100k a year, but the job I have and the life I live is my purpose and I would not change it for the world. I am a lucky wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend.
Until Next Time,
